I know that Benefits and Work subscribers will have had this via email, but there are many on here who would not know about the consultation taking place, that we can all have a say in.
In a nutshell, the DWP have created a survey to ask about the 'moving around activity' section of the PIP assessment. This is the controversial '20 metre' limit that they will use to determine if someone will get the standard rate (currently Mid rate on DLA) or higher rate mobility component of PIP - when it comes to your turn to be assessed for it of course.
The 16 page consultation document can be downloaded at:> gov.uk/government/consultat... .
There is a lot of complex explanation but it's all based on the various limits they are imposing with PIP, and how this affects our qualifying for mobility payments in the future. In a nutshell they are saying 'If you can come up with anything better...' It is NOT for complaints, they'll ignore any abusive stuff, but for measured response
They have also provided a series of MP3 recordings that explain it all for those who have difficulty reading, same web address.
